Nicolette Townsend is the lead singer and guitarist for the fictional rock group known as The Conspiracy Theory. Nicolette was described to me as conforming to the aesthetic of the Beat generation. Having studied that particular era in university, it conjures up a very specific image and tone that I used for this piece. Nicolette styles herself in a very simple manner but what I find interesting is the juxtaposition of the tattoos in her visual equation. The sleeves of roses were difficult to draw and colour. I initially intended them to be faded but I didn't quite like the look of them. I ultimately chose to leave them as they originally came out. Overall, I think Nicolette looks rather stylish.
